I used the Genius Bar at the apple store several times in the past, but now I have an android so I've not been tho an apple store in years, and it turns out the genius bar appointment process has totally changed.

Go to https://getsupport.apple.com/
> Select Apple ID
> Select Forgot Apple ID password
> Select Schedule a call and select a date/time for them to call you

The Apple genius specialist guru will call you at that time.

You also have the option to call them right away. Currently it says the wait time is 2 minutes or less. All you need to say is that I don't have access to the email I used when I signed up for apple itunes years ago, so using the lost password function is pointless, and for that reason can you guys help me get past this roadblock?

That was an interesting bunny rabbit trail! I hope you get it figured out.

thank you ladies in helping me figure this out. So, I have to rest my apple password and i-tunes. They have probably sent me e-mails, but I haven't got any of them. I used to have earthlink. That was long ago. I think it is because everything is automated.

I have been on the phone with them many times, and gave up.

I obviously need to go to the Apple store. They always have lines.

I have asked many engineers here, and kids. Nobody knows.

Cherrie I also want to mention that if you find a podcast you really like, like I LOVE Randsomed Heart John Eldredge's, you can download the episode and burn it to a cd, then listen to it in your car when traveling. So say you could download 10-15 episodes and burn them to a cd. Or you can mix several podcasts, whichever ones you like the best, the ones you want to listen to over and over. Stasi Eldredge had an outstanding podcast about healing from trauma last week. Here is a link to it. http://www.ransomedheart.com/podcast/effec

Lively girl, your post made me chuckle because I have botched up my apple password so many times over the years! Apple makes it so convoluted to update your password, that I changed my password to something like "stupid5" so I wouldn't forget it ever again. Crazy. So rest assured you are not the first person to forget an Apple password, then totally give up trying to re-set it and start again!

I haven't found a good alternative to iTunes if I listen from a pc; this makes me sad because iTunes is quite buggy. The Google Play podcast feature is not very robust; they are very secular in their podcasts. It's like they don't want to have more than a few christian podcasts; you have to really hunt to find them so I just gave up and went back to iTunes.

If you listen from your phone, then there are 2 apps I like, one that I favor in particular right now is Podcast Addict. However Podcast Republic is also good.

I think I'll check out the Garrison Keillor podcast. It appears to be super popular; I really appreciate podcasts that are less than 20 minutes.

The Sparkpeople podcast hasn't been updated since 2014. I subscribed to it anyway.

Cherrie, yes you can listen to podcasts on a pc. I use the iTunes program on my pc at work to listen to podcasts. If I'm home, I use the Podcast Addict app.

If you have a particular person you follow, like say Gary Chapman or Wild At Heart author John Eldredge you can also go to that person's website and listen to the podcast from their website.

I am totally technologically-challenged. I have a laptop computer & a 'dumb' cellphone with which I can only make/receive calls, text & take pictures.

Can I listen to podcasts on the computer? Do I need to purchase a special program (I only have the basic programs that came with the computer when I bought it.)

I'm glad you asked for two reasons.one is that I forgot the password to i-tunes and my apple nano. Then we got a different computer.I sent them numerous e-mails and phone call... nothing resolved.

I liked Daily Audio Bible

Spark People ( health and nutrition)

A pastor in Idaho Bill something

Garrison Killar( Prairie Companion Stories )

I had some motivational speakers and poetry. I.ve had music and other shows.

Christian podcasts I like are:
* Ransomed Heart (this is John Eldredge author of "Wild At Heart")
* Building Relationships (Dr Gary Chapman)
* Professional Christian Coaching Today

I also like Chrystal Evans Hurst although her podcasts go a little long for me.

Secular podcasts I like are:
* Stuff You Missed in History Class
* Coaching For Leaders
* Nutrition Diva

I'm sure there are others out there I am not aware of that I would enjoy. If you have any favorites, please share!
